Superior Court Judge Orders Timely Decisions on Medi-Cal


Alameda County Superior Court Judge Evelio Grillo ruled on January 20 that if California's Department of Health Care Services cannot process a Medi-Cal application within its 45-day deadline, then it must grant applicants who are likely eligible with provisional health benefits. This lawsuit, which was filed in September 2014, accused the Department of leaving hundreds of thousands of Californians without vital health care benefits, while their applications lingered well beyond the 45-day deadline set by law. Current Medi-Cal applicants who have been waiting more than 45 days should contact the Health Consumer Alliance for assistance, at 1-888-804-3536.
